The Week in Vegan: Sex, Lust and a Cat Losing Its Composure

Posted By on Mon, Oct 20, 2014 at 10:54 AM

Want to live forever (read: longer)? Well, new research shows there's a correlation between eating a diet rich in vegetables (and impoverished in meat products) and lasting longer on this mortal coil. You can say what you want about how eating grass is for rabbits, but I found some barbecue-flavored sunflower seeds at the store yesterday, so I'm good and will also live forever. (Or like two more years.)

If you're going to vote in the World's Sexiest Vegan contest being sponsored by PETA, you should absolutely vote for Edward Ozols, who is both sexy and a septuagenarian. Just click over and see how his eyes smolder. Is it just my broken heater or is it hot in here?  

Speaking of sexy, here's a delightful new book: The Lusty Vegan. It's chock-full of recipes and relationship advice and also probably some exciting uses for a cucumber. I don't know if that's true, it's just what I imagine. 

Even people who aren't vegetarian are purchasing meat substitutes at a higher rate. That's probably because meat substitutes are now more delicious and nutritious than ever. I've been eating a plant-based diet since 2004 and I can tell you that we've come a long way from inedible grain burgers and weird, flavorless jerky. Am I having an "in my day" moment? Good practice for when I have kids. 

Good news: No foie gras in california! The ban remains! Geese forever!

Bad news: Cruelty in the pork industry has folks questioning whether "Bacon Is the New Veal."

Cute news: It's a cat and leaves! We are thisclose to Halloween and now your Monday is infinitely better.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
